Have you ever been to an event with amazing uplighting and ended up feeling great and happy about life? When you attend an event with live music, these concerts utilize dynamic lighting systems to further stimulate their audiences. It makes for a great time for everyone involved.

We’ve been to events where the lighting just wasn’t right. The lights were too dim, there were too many lasers, too much strobing, and it can often overload the senses.

Light has several factors that affect us differently

Color affects our mood while various colors can create a change in us in different ways, mentally or physiologically. Brighter colors like yellow help to create a sunny, or joyous atmosphere. It reminds us of the daytime when the sun is out and beaming. We tend to associate sunny days with good memories. We feel warmer inside. Darker colors like black are often viewed as ‘negative.’ Black is usually associated with the night, making us sleepy or susceptible to more negative emotions like sadness or despair.

Movement is another factor affected by lighting. It refers to the actual movement of the light particles or beams. If the lights aren’t moving, then we tend to be more focused on the subject that is being illuminated. For example, at a play they tend to focus a spotlight on the actor or actress. This helps us focus on the performance itself. Now picture yourself at a music festival where the lights are strobing, flashing, and changing colors intensely. This particular type of lighting instills more energy in the crowd. It them dancing for hours on end.

Decoration is important to us. We are visual creatures and tend to like things that look good. When it comes to events, lighting can really emphasize the important details that you want to stand out while drowning out other “visual noise.” Perfecting the lighting rig for an event can truly make the occasion that much better. It is another form of decoration.
